A lot going on

This short story throws a lot at you in a short amount of time. I like where the story is heading, I just wish they'd have put a little more time into getting there.

I had the pleasure of meeting CG Powell at Indie BookFest last year where she gave me a free printed version of this short story.

I enjoyed it. The writing was good and I was comfortable with the pacing till about half way through. Unfortunately, the second half was a massive info dump with witches, familiars, werewolves, and vampires revealing themselves all at once.

I realize this was meant to be a very short introduction to the Veronica Benoit series, but there was a good story here that coul

Deep in the Louisiana swamp there are lots of dangers like alligators and poisonous snakes to watch out for. But those were the least of Veronicas worries only she had no clue she had been sheltered her whole entire life but she is about to be thrown into the middle of the craziness all around her.

I thought this story was so intriguing, it had that supernatural flare I love with a little swing of romance. It was a great little nugget of goodness that gets you ready for the next book and it has

This is the first book I've read by this author. I really enjoyed it. I wasn't totally sure what it was about when I bought the ebook. Because of the title I thought it was about Vampires. There are vampires in it, but they aren't the main characters. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I started reading. I really liked this book, and I bought book two before I was even done reading the first one.

I wish I'd read this book first. A continuing saga is better in order. My only complaint is the lack of proper editing so it would read more smoothly. Otherwise, love the characters, well fleshed out in such a short time. I also like the imagery, makes me feel like I'm watching a movie in my head. I love that about books. No commercials.

It wasn't long enough! I knew this was just an introduction, but I was so sucked in from the first page. I couldn't quit reading. After 30 minutes I was hooked and the end. Lol!

Can't wait for more!

Fun story, great read with a supernatural twist. Veronica has no idea what she is and that those who surround her are really supernatural.....Looking forward to the next book in this series.
